Kind Words

I’ve been cooking many years and no longer ask for reviews or references but these are some statements from beloved clients over the years.

“Emily is an awesome healthy chef. Great for families and professionals on the go who want to eat well. Very happy with her services and I highly recommend her.”

“Emily has been our personal chef for more than 6 months preparing delicious and nutritious meals for our busy family. Her professionalism, creativity and culinary talents are exceptional. The menu selection is extensive however with one child who does not eat red meat Emily makes adjustments to any recipes. I recently had Emily cater a dinner party and it was a great success. Emily created the menu and executed the dishes perfectly. The guests raved, including one who owns renowned restaurants. Our family would highly recommend Emily.”

“Emily prepared a four course birthday dinner for six people which was fantastic. She created a menu based on all of the preferences I provided for our group. The meal was fresh (ingredients were purchased by Emily at the Farmer’s Market that morning) and tasty. Emily was very personable and answered any questions we had about technique, food prep, and recipes. I will definitely work with Emily again for events in the future.”

“Emily is a consummate professional and makes the most delicious, healthy, and amazing dishes imaginable! Adaptable and responsive, Emily always supplies wonderful meal suggestions and is ever open to new and creative menu ideas. Cook day is my favorite day and feels like the equivalent of a “grown-up Christmas.” I would probably sell my car before I would give up Emily food! You will not find better service in Tampa Bay. “

“Emily cooks healthy meals for my family every two weeks. We freeze some of the meals to eat at a later date. My husband and I both work full-time, and finding the time to cook nutritious meals has been a challenge. We would often buy food, and waste it when we didn’t have time to cook. Now, we always have healthy food available, and we don’t waste anything!

“Hi Emily …I wanted to compliment you on the Thai sweet potato soup, the oven baked sweet potato chick pea falafel and the all natural turkey and mushroom meatloaf.  These meals were just incredible..over the top with flavors and textures and loaded with umami.  Keep up the fine cooking and menu choices and thanks for the wonderful culinary experience.”

“Emily to food is like a conductor to an orchestra. She makes things happen. She will introduce foods with ingredients that you never thought of putting together. Her mastery of melding flavors can’t be beat. She inspires one to eat healthier and improve ones overall food selection. Try her out because you will not be disappointed.”

“Emily prepares organic, gluten-free meals for us – and they taste great! She has a wonderful menu of recipes, and I also give her my own recipes.”

“Working with Emily has been a pleasure. She is an excellent chef, and gives me great advice. I feel lucky to have found her!”

“Emily and her business was professional, punctual, and consistent AND not to forget, delicious!”

“Emily is creative and efficient while keeping an eye on details.  She anticipate her client needs. Her suggestions have been sensible, healthy and delicious. Her creativity and ability to find locally grown and organic products insures fresh and varied menus we have enjoyed discovering every week. She does great catering too.”

”Emily is great…she has great attention to detail and she makes some darn tasty vittles!”

“Chef Emily uses locally grown products to create healthy, wholesome meals with amazing taste. Her meal deliver concept makes having a personal chef available to anyone. She saves you time, keeps you healthy, and all for an affordable price. I’ve also used her for special events and everyone always raves. Make your life easier and your palate happy – hire Emily.”

“Emily is great…she has great attention to detail and she makes some darn tasty vittles!”

“So glad to have found Emily Golden and mindful meals. I don’t always have time or cooking skills so it’s such a pleasure to have healthy organic meals delivered to my home. The food is great…… and healthy”

“Emily makes the most amazing healthy have this type of food delivered is such a great thing to do for your family!”

“Emily is an extremely talented, creative chef. She has been our chef for small parties as well as a large outdoor rehearsal dinner. I highly recommend Emily!”

“Emily creates imaginative menus that are health centered without the often times boring selections that accompany this type cuisine. The online ordering process is efficient and hassle free.”

“Mindful Meals delivery yesterday, Hooray!  Last night for dinner, I had a bowl of sweet potato soup (with a tasty hint of ginger), a half a stuffed pepper (so flavorful), and a half of the zucchini ribbon salad (the dressing was to die for!)  All I had to cook was a frozen French roll to dip in the soup!  When I finished, I thought ‘this could not have been a healthier, more delicious meal!!’  Then my second thought was, ‘It could have been a little more perfect…  if ONLY I had ordered a slice of their chocolate cake!’  Then I had to think about that cake all night!’
